Vaca Brava Park, Goiania

4.4
Nature / Park Must See
Strolling around Vaca Brava Park you will be struck by the contrasting colors of your surroundings. A small green forest filled with an abundance of native flora and home to many small animals, surrounds a large dark blue lake with a fountain at its center. The peaceful atmosphere is a welcome relief from the city, which you can see looming on the park’s periphery. With plans set out in the 1950s, this 79,800 sq m (20 acres) park was to replace a disease-ridden swamp on the site, and it was finally completed in 1996. The locals use the running track and exercise stations, but this place is also perfect for some serious R & R. A couple of hours and a few coconut waters later you will feel completely re-energized. Our Goiania trip site makes visiting Vaca Brava Park and other Goiania attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

    Between large constructions and the intense movement of the surrounding avenues, the Park has a calm relaxing, a nature and a dense forest contrasts with the Lake and planned lawn.
